Hi Carol, |
This will be kind of a quick response but a response nonetheless.
Daniel - I agree that it is good that the misunderstanding between Raul and Helga regarding her comments on firearms was apparently resolved. But, there are other issues here that have not been resolved. I am wondering:
* Should a person be accommodated, as was the case with Raul, when he spews and threatens (legal action no less) without doing any research?
* After my first post, I was told that a gringo couple paid for Raul's legal education in Autlan (at a bachelor degree level) but is that the same as good judgment (as in doing basic fact checking before making allegations)?
It's true, his education was paid for by a gringo couple. I feel it was a good investment as he did complete his studies and from what I understand was at the top of his class. It's a learning process for all of us especially in seeing first hand how easy it is to misunderstand and the baseless war that can ensue if the misunderstanding is not cleared up. Let's hope things improve in the future, for all of us.
* What about Raul's failure to disclose his self-interest? Is that objectivity?
* what about Raul's defense of Christo (apparently because he was being paid by someone with political connections) and his dissing of people who have been burglarized, suffered home invasions and had to deal with threats to their children and sexual exhibitionism?
*I guess all of these are judgment issues, including the decision as to whether you want to use this guy as a commentator.
My experience is that Raul knows a lot about law and could help in places we don't know about the law. But first we have to address the translation issue. That was the primary source of the misunderstanding a couple of day's ago and will certainly happen again. One step at a time. Thanks for the post and for putting your thoughts out there, I hope my response helped in someway and did not come off as to polyana.
Adios for now,
